One cup of coffee...

COVID-19 has made it clearer than ever before, that having a safe place to live saves lives.

This has been a tough year for many people, both here at home and in the communities where we work around the world, and I know that there will be many asks for your support.

This Christmas we are asking that you give us the most important support – not a huge gift but a regular gift.

Giving by monthly direct debit allows us to plan better, cuts down on admin and makes sure that more of your support goes directly to the people and communities we serve.

For the price of one cup of coffee a week, or €10 per month, you can help us transform the future for children in Zambia, making sure they have a home to stay safe in, with a door that locks and access to water and sanitation.

Children like Anna Nampemba (right), aged 9 from Zambia, deserve to be able to sleep safe at night. Anna’s mum Rudith was constantly worried for Anna and her 4 siblings until the family moved to their Habitat home in Kabwe.

Just €10 every month would help roof a Habitat home, a regular gift of €5 would provide a solid door that locks.

Your cup of coffee could help us reach out to vulnerable people at home too, allowing us to buy paint for our House to Home programme, helping people like Seamus and others who have been homeless make their house a home.

Seamus wanted me to tell you that “your support made a remarkable difference in transforming just a ‘roof over my head’ into a home”.

You can help us build for the future by becoming a Habitat Hope Builder; joining the dedicated group of people who understand the importance of home and are determined to act. Over the last 25 years nearly 35,000 people across Ireland have engaged with Habitat’s mission – I dream of a time when we have a solid foundation to reach more families. You can be part of that foundation.

Martin Luther King said, “the time is always right to do what’s right.”

 

I am asking that you commit to join us in doing what’s right, because I believe that no matter who we are or where we come from, we all need a decent place to live.

The economic impact of COVID will be felt most in 2021, and beyond, that’s why a regular gift will make a real difference. Please donate the cost of just one cup of coffee a week, as a monthly gift, to give more children like Anna, the chance to be safe and vulnerable people like Seamus, the chance to make their house a home.

Give your regular gift by filling in the form below or give us a call on +353 1 531 0033 and we can take your details by phone.

Wishing you, and your families, a safe, healthy and peaceful Christmas and blessings for 2021.

Thank you,

Jenny Williams
